Freediving Instructor


If you are a freediver enthusiast, chances are you spend a lot of your time thinking and talking about freediving, sharing the details of your latest adventures.

Becoming a PADI Freediving Instructor allows you to turn your passion into a profession.

It takes hard work, but you are rewarded with a new job, which allows you to share your incredible achievements with others.

You will transform the life of your students for the better, enriching yours.

There are two ways to become a PADI Freediver Instructor.

The first is for experienced freedivers who acquire teaching skills by attending a PADI Freediver Instructor training course.

The second way is for freediver instructors from other didactics who want to join the PADI organization by attending an Orientation Padi Freediver Instructor.
